Hanukkah O Hanukkah, come light the menorah! Hanukkah celebrates the miracle Jewish people experienced after reclaiming the Temple of Jerusalem when a tiny amount of lamp oil lit up the Temple for eight days. This Festival of Lights is celebrated by lighting the Menorah for eight nights using the center candle (the shamash). It is a time of giving, prayer and togetherness. Teller of tales, Dan Gordon, will delight you with Hanukkah stories (Dec. 6. & 8), plus make macaroni Menorahs, Hanukkah garlands, or play the dreidel or the flip fried latke game.
